1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    That's like saying you should learn to live with a leaking faucet. It's annoying. It's costing you money (wasting your resources). Why not just fix it?

    There is no clear, fair standard by which you could exclude him. Without that, it's just a clique rebuffing outsiders.

    Piob , I'm surprised but pleasantly so. I suspect if you have a chance to handle some of Herr Leder's works--being a man of refined tastes--you'll truly enjoy the fabrics, along with the generous fittings (something which, thankfully, is not in line with the more general shrink-wrapped nature of swd).


    this isn't necessarily accurate as he's not costing anything to anyone

    the problem SB points out is true, action reaction counteraction.. but then again he's a West Coast leftist forcing collectivism down our throats :devil:

    a more apt analogy would be that a farmer on his ranch suddenly finds the neighbor's mule has decided to unbudgingly settle in his kitchen.

    The real problem is the small group of people who drive away 'resources', who are absolutely terrible to all but a handful of people who've been here for years, all in the name of 'community' -- which you'll notice they use as just another word for "what I want at this exact point in time, screw everyone else". One person isn't the problem. Why pretend like it is?

    Can I complain here if I have an issue with a Style Forum member's twitter tweets?

    Are you getting annoyed with Vox bragging about his daily lunchtime Martinis? He's technically not a member anymore.

    Short answer: no. I actually think it is awesome and should be celebrated that there is somebody out there having lunchtime martinis AND not having to go back to work afterwards.

    I don't think I will ever fully retire. But if I did it surely won't be at 49, or whatever. Maybe 89.

    When trying to see who has thumbed a post, I get redirected to a page "insufficient permissions, You do not have permissions to view user reputation".

    Not all of us are breeding a herd to support us when we get older. I'm with Booth; I'm never going to fully retire and will work full time until I'm 64.

    Honestly, this. Sometimes I feel that tolerance is in short supply in today's society and that people need to become more comfortable with being annoyed by others.


    I hate to put on my old-man hat, mainly because I'm not really that old, just much older than your average poster in SWD. In my wizened state, however, it would appear to me that a fair number of poster in that forum lack the discipline ignore the contributions of posters they find to be obnoxious. Just use the ignore function and have the discipline to not click on the spoilered posts. I'll admit that it's tempting at first, but you actually get used to it very quickly. And if it turns out that laschenko isn't an ass and other people who haven't ignored him start to show some sort of encouragement towards his activity, I'll go back and unblock him. It's happened before and I'm sure it'll happen again.

    I simply have the discipline to not care about the posts I don't like...If I had them on ignore, I would always click on them...instead I can simply choose to skim them or choose to ignore them completely with a twist of the mousewheel.
